Being online is not confined to home or cyber-cafes anymore. The number of people connecting through mobile phones, iphones, ipad etc. are steadily increasing. It makes sense to use the time between commutes, whether in a bus or subway to surf and do things on the internet.
The online casino industry recognised the potential of these trends. There are now a healthy list of Mobile Casinos, websites that serve casino games including casino, poker, bingo and sports betting on specially created mobile sites through mobile casino softwares.
Though the normal online casino softwares and sites can be accessed by many of the new mobile phones, iphones and android devices in use today, it does not allow smooth play. This is because of the bandwidth limitations the mobile devices have. Some of the games run intense graphic displays meant for normal broadband internet connections.
These mobile casino sites used softwares specially created for mobile phones and other mobile devices. The softwares used by these mobile casinos are toned down and tailored to the specific requirements of mobile devices. This ensures a smooth play comparable to the normal games.
Most of these mobile casinos are made to be compatible with a wide range of mobile phones, androids, iphones, ipad etc. in use today. You will find the list of brands and models of mobile devices supported on their sites which includes most of the internet-enabled devices currently in the market.
Typical procedure to play casino games on mobile phones is a visit to the mobile sites. You will need to give your mobile number and country and choose one or several of the available games. The sites will then send an SMS to your mobile with a link for download of the software and games. Once installation is complete, you can register an account and play for free or play real money games as you would in a normal online casino.
